Body Of Lies (2008)
Wednesday 4th March 2009
Explosive, action packed and utterly engrossing, Body Of Lies, released on DVD and Blu-Ray from Warner Home Entertainment on 30th March 2009, is a movie that has to be seen to be believed - or maybe not. Who knows in a world where secrets and lies prevail, where your every move is under surveillance and where trust is a luxury, not a commodity.
Three-times Academy Award nominated Ridley Scott (Black Hawk Down, Gladiator, Thelma & Louise) takes us into the murky underworld of today's high-stakes global espionage with Body Of Lies, a world where power is measured not by weaponry or technology but by the amount of vital information one can acquire and control - or appear to.
Available to own on DVD and Blu-ray, Body Of Lies stars Hollywood heavyweights and Academy Award nominees Leonardo Di Caprio (Blood Diamond, The Aviator, The Departed) and Russell Crowe (Gladiator, The Insider) along with renowned British actor Mark Strong (Stardust) and beautiful Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani (M for Mother).
Based on Washington Post columnist David Ignatius's 2007 novel about ruthless CIA methods of espionage, Body Of Lies is filled with huge action sequences as it criss-crosses the globe - United States, England, Holland, Iraq, Jordan and Syria. En-route, we are shockingly introduced to the visceral, down-and-dirty real lives of intelligence operatives in one of the world's most dangerous regions.
With violence and deception the name of the game, Body Of Lies exposes a world where war is being waged not only on the ground and in the air, but in cyberspace.
Roger Ferris (Leonardo Di Caprio) is the best man U.S. Intelligence has on the ground, in places where human life is worth no more than the information it can get you. In operations that take him around the globe, Ferris' next breath often depends on the voice at the other end of a secure phone line - CIA veteran Ed Hoffman (Russell Crowe).
Strategising from a laptop in the suburbs, Hoffman is on the trail of an emerging terrorist leader who has orchestrated a campaign of bombings while eluding the most sophisticated intelligence network in the world, but the closer Ferris gets to the target, the more he discovers that trust is both a dangerous commodity and the only one that will get him out alive.
